Night Vision: Can I Legally Hunt With It?

Is Night Vision Legal?

Generally, this is an easy question to answer. Night vision and thermal devices are legal to own in the United States. Through my research, I found out that only California has laws regarding illegal sniper scopes.

The California law states that it is illegal to possess any attachment, device, or similar contrivance designed for or adaptable to use on a firearm which, through the utilization of a projected infrared light source and electronic telescope, enables the operator thereof to visually determine and locate the presence of objects during the nighttime.

Other night vision devices are perfectly legal, though.
